Grief Support

Holding a funeral or memorial service for your loved one is a first step in the grieving process. During this time, family members and friends have an opportunity to say their goodbyes, share strong emotions, and comfort one another.

In the days, weeks and months following the service, people continue to need others to lean on for understanding, encouragement and guidance. Local and national support groups are available to help during this time of transition.

These groups provide a comforting environment for expressing emotions through each phase of the grieving process. To learn more about grief support services, click on the links below, or discuss grief counseling and support options with your funeral director.
